21 emotions English has no word for. Some things "light us up". Some things "leave us cold". Such dim metaphors only hint at the unspoken universe of feeling, dimensions we can only guess that we share. A new infographic explores "untranslatable" feeling-words from other languages.

We Feel Fine is an art project that finds
sentences from blogs and stitches together a real-time picture of how the web community
is feeling. The default visualization uses a particle system to show the most recent thousand feelings. You can also build your own set based on criteria, such as gender, age, or location. Click the heart menu and go to Mobs to watch the particles organize in impressiveways. The gestalt of the visualization is compelling,
but the details are the best part.
Somesample montages. Also see a related project, Love Lines, which uses the same API.
